Guys: Want To Be Sexier? Do These Ten Things!

On more than one occasion I’ve said, “That’s so sexy.” To the point where my friends think I think EVERYTHING is sexy. That’s not too far off from the truth. Here are ten things you can do (for free!) to make a girl think you’re sexy:

  1. Open the door. And I don’t mean like opening car doors or anything awkward. Just hold open the door for the girl when you’re walking in the building. And even nicer? Hold it open for the people coming in immediately after you.
  2. Let a girl leave the room first. It’s not like you have to wait for the whole room to clear out. If you’re walking out of a room with a girl, simply let her go through the door first.
  3. Offer to carry anything heavy. If there’s something heavy, pick it up before she can. If she’s holding it offer to carry it or simply take it from her. I don’t care how strong you are, it’s always nice to have help!
  4. Be nice to your mom. And waitresses. And anyone else who does something nice for you. Show appreciation. And it doesn’t always have to be in the form of an outlandish tip (although tipping nice rather than being stingy is sexy, too). The point is to be appreciative and say “thank you.”
  5. Fix something. There are lots of things, no matter where you are, that need to be fixed. Change a tire, replace a light bulb, fix a leaky faucet, replace a broken flapper on a toilet, rewire a house. Sure you don’t have all of these skills, but when you get the opportunity to learn. Do it. So sexy.
  6. Be a courteous driver. I mean we don’t want you to be wimps, but scaring the crap out of us with your “masculine rebellion” isn’t sexy to most girls. Keep your temper, and keep us safe. I even think it’s sexy when a guy puts on a seatbelt. (Of course, when we’re parked, being so conservative isn’t on our list of sexy.)
  7. Know your stuff and speak your mind. Smart is sexy. If you have an opinion on a topic, speak up. But agree to disagree. While you’re speaking your mind, find a way to do it respectfully. There’s nothing sexier than a guy who is confident enough in himself he doesn’t have to make everyone else agree with him.
  8. Stand up for yourself, but don’t fight just to fight. It’s SO sexy when a guy stands up for himself, assuming that doesn’t mean his temper goes off the handle and he punches anyone or anything he can. No girl wants to bail her guy out of jail or nurse a wound at the end of the night, we’d rather be doing more fun stuff. And if you punch a hole in the wall, you better be up to speed on #5. Or you’re for sure out.
  9. Compliment us. If you notice something different, compliment it. Or just say we look nice. Every girl likes to hear nice things. And most of the time we’re going out of our way to look nice for you.
  10. Be yourself. There is absolutely nothing sexier than a guy owning who he is, quirks and all. We want to know the real you. And chances are that’s more interesting, fun, and sexy than the guy you’re trying to be so we’ll like you.

If you don’t do all of these things, fine (see item #10). They’re not deal breakers. But most of them are simple, and maybe stuff you’ve never thought about. Some guys even think some of this stuff is degrading to women. There are some girls out there who might be offended by this stuff. But even the most “equal rights” girls in the office (hey, I’m one of them!) want to be treated with respect in her personal life. I’ll open a door for a guy (both at home and at work), but I also like it when a guy gets it for me.

Oh, and hey! One more sexy tip? Do this stuff all the time. Not just with a girl you’re trying to get in bed. Because the girl you’re trying to get in bed will notice!

    I couldn’t agree with you more. They guys who do these little things in my office every day I never forget. I also never forget the jerks who don’t. What really irrates me is my carryon bag when I am flying. My bag isn’t heavy b/c I know that no matter what I am the one that has to drag it around but I am petite and it’s not easy to put my carryon in the overhead bin. But every time, there are a handful of guys already seated around me and not one of them offers to help. I think when guys wonder how a hot girl could be with a not so hot guy, chances are he probably helped her with her carryon 🙂


  2. I totally agree! Manners aren’t totally gone, but the problem is, lots of girls don’t WANT a guy’s help. And sometimes I’m that way, but mostly I’ll take any help a guy will offer. But I think guys don’t hop up to do it anymore, not because they’re lazy or anything, but because they’re afraid the girl will reject their offer. Rejection sucks. But I’ve never seen a guy who refuses to help when you ask. Maybe next time find a cute guy and say, “Would you mind helping?” And then comment on how easy he made it. Perfect pickup line!
